To understand the astrological Mars, you only have to meet the Mars People.
Who are the Mars People? They’re Aries, particularly those with the Sun and Moon, Rising or a planet in Aries as well. Having Mars in Aries, Capricorn, or Scorpio also raises your Mars cred. Or, the 1st House, 8th House or 10th House. Mars conjunct Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, or Pluto? Amped.
Mars In (Accelerated) Motion
Mars people don’t have to know that they’re ruled by the Warrior God to get it on with life. They’re Nuance Phobic and oblivious to tone, operating off pure energy frequencies. Maybe they miss some of your subtleties but they sure as hell notice if you deplete, threaten, scramble or support their energy.
Mars People move on fast. The Mars Person version of closure is when they manage to shut the door without slamming it.
They are Solutions Driven characters who like things to happen at Warp Speed. Your “but…” is a potentially hostile act against their interests, even if it is reasonable. The Mars people take charge of s**t, even s***t that is not technically in their brief.
They are self-accountable, taking responsibility for situations even when they are the victim. Leadership and self-determination are genuinely relaxing for them.
Mars People + Mission Mode
Always in mission mode, they set themselves constant challenges and personal bests. Cold showers, fast money, holding their breath, or holding a plank: it’s all calculated and compared to previous benchmarks. They keep score. They’re combative by nature, regardless of their literal combat experience.
In love, business, and physique, Mars People find it easier to gain strength than to become flexible. They are Momentum Players, having more fear of congealing than they do of a fuq-up.
